The Outsider 720p Hd Movie

Actually, beefy, six-foot-three Brit Craig Fairbrass feels more like a subpar version of Jason Statham, given how generically ludicrous this B-movie's plotting and action are. But the premise will sound familiar.

The Outsider 720p Hd Movie


Patric's character refers to Lex as "the limey" at one point, as if this movie's echoes of Steven Soderbergh's 1999 thriller weren't already obvious. Director Brian A. Miller, who co-wrote the script with Fairbrass, clearly was trying to make that sort of modern-day film noir, the kind that lurks in the seedy underbelly of L.A. His interiors are full of smoky light streaming through half-closed blinds, and his (many, many) aerial shots of the city aim to depict it as a vast, glittering wasteland. (His geography is distractingly mangled if you know how the freeway system here works, but that's the least of the film's problems.)

Fairbrass could be a viable and even enjoyable B-action hero if given the right material. He's got a striking, muscular presence and he seems to understand the innate guilty-pleasure ridiculousness of the genre. Until then, he'll have to remain an outsider himself.

Parents need to know that The Outsiders is the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola film adaptation of a novel detailing the coming-of-age of "greaser" teens in 1950s Tulsa as they contend with not just bullying and physical attacks from the rich kids on the other side of the tracks but also abuse and neglect from their parents at home, poverty, and bleak future prospects. Characters drink, smoke, get in fights, harass schoolchildren, use knives and guns, and commit murder. One character is severely burned and dies. Additionally, the film deals frankly with class stratification. A teen girl rejects the drunken sexual advances of her boyfriend while they're at a drive-in movie theater. At this same drive-in, a clearly drunk teen raises the skirt of a teen girl, exposing her panties. A "greaser" teen asks a teen girl with red hair, in so many words, if her pubic hair is the same color. Occasional profanity includes "damn," "son of a bitch," "bastards," and "wiseass," and expect to see the middle-finger gesture. Note: The original cut of the movie was rated PG in 1983, before the PG-13 rating existed. The edited/extended cut released in 2003 carries the PG-13 rating.

The Curtis brothers and their friends run with a pack of wrong-side-of-the tracks greasers who smoke endless packs of cigarettes and spend most of their time looking for trouble. When Ponyboy Curtis (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny Cade (Ralph Macchio) have a run-in with a pack of Socs after a drive-in movie, Johnny stabs one of the Socs. At the advice of their friend Dallas (Matt Dillon), they hide out in an abandoned church, but a tragic chain of events has already begun to unfold.

Why do you think people -- and teens in particular -- feel a need to form cliques, gangs, and social groups that stand apart from others? How does this movie attempt to show the camaraderie but also the big-picture absurdity in being involved too closely with cliques, gangs, and social groups?

Merging standard gangster movie clichés of both the Japanese and American variety, The Outsider only manages to be ultra-violent and ultra-dull simultaneously. The glacially paced film is beautifully photographed and features impeccable production and costume design, but it strains so mightily for seriousness that it verges on self-parody.

The movie was filmed on location at the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona, Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Camp Calvin B. Matthews in California, Soldier Field in Chicago, San Diego, the Marine Corps War Memorial at Arlington, Virginia, Arlington National Cemetery, and at Universal Studios in California.

I'm a former Chemical Engineer. It was boring so I decided to write about things I love. On the geek side of things, I write about comics, cartoons, video games, television, movies and basically, all things nerdy. I also write about music in terms of punk, indie, hardcore and emo because well, they rock! If you're bored by now, then you also don't want to hear that I write for ESPN on the PR side of things. And yes, I've written sports for them too! Not bad for someone from the Caribbean, eh? To top all this off, I've scribed short films and documentaries, conceptualizing stories and scripts from a human interest and social justice perspective. Business-wise, I make big cheddar (not really) as a copywriter and digital strategist working with some of the top brands in the Latin America region. In closing, let me remind you that the geek shall inherit the Earth. Oh, FYI, I'd love to write the Gargoyles movie for Disney. YOLO. That said, I'm on Twitter @RenaldoMatadeen. So holler.

MOVIE PREMIERE: HBO's premiere movie of the week is Yesterday. From director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and writer Richard Curtis (Love Actually), the film tells the story of Jack Malik (Himesh Patel), a struggling musician who wakes to find he is the only person who knows of The Beatles or any of their songs. Watch the trailer. 8:00 PM ET on HBO

"I can't tell you how many people will come up to me and say something about it, whether they're parents or kids themselves," he told AV Club of his role in The Outsiders. "I hear from so many parents, 'Yeah, my son, my daughter, had a real hard time reading books until they had to read The Outsiders, and they fell in love with that book, then they watched the film, and not only is it their favorite movie, but they read constantly now."

"People talk about having grown up with me," he told in 2014. "That The Outsiders is the first movie they saw or their first date with their wife was About Last Night... or St. Elmo's Fire. Or they went into politics because of The West Wing and now they're the head speech writer for President Obama. Which is a true story. And, again, you can only get that with history. Being part of history means you're going to be getting old."

To ward off the malaise, the actor joined Lane in shooting Rumble Fish with Coppola right after they wrapped The Outsiders, after which he starred in the rom-com The Flamingo Kid and then did a lot of playing-against-heartthrob-type, perhaps most memorably in Gus Van Sant's gritty Drugstore Cowboy, for which he won an Independent Spirit Award. Through the years he's had memorable turns in Singles, To Die For, Beautiful Girls, Wild Things, There's Something About Mary (going on to date co-star Cameron Diaz), Crash (earning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination and winning another Spirit Award), Old Dogs and the TV drama Wayward Pines. His latest movie, Capone (featuring an unrecognizable Tom Hardy as the titular gangster), is streaming on Amazon, and up next is the political satire Land of Dreams. He also directed and co-wrote the 2002 crime drama City of Ghosts and helmed the 2020 documentary The Great Fellove.

Before playing doomed greaser Johnny Cade in The Outsiders, Macchio had done one movie, Up the Academy, directed by Robert Downey Sr. (whose son would later be in the running against Macchio to star in a certain teen martial arts film), and had a recurring role on the family sitcom Eight Is Enough.

Swayze played Ponyboy's eldest brother, Darrel "Darry" Curtis, and then reteamed with Howell for both Grandview, U.S.A. and Red Dawn the next year. Depending on who you are and what you're into, Swayze will always be Johnny Castle from Dirty Dancing, John Dalton from Road House, Sam Wheat from Ghost or Bodhi from Point Break, or perhaps Vida Boheme in To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, so iconic were all of those roles. But as with everyone who was in The Outsiders, that movie meant everything to the trajectory of his career.

The unusual audition process, in which the actors took turns reading with each other as different characters, and everyone stayed in the room and watched each other's readings, "was nerve-wracking," Estevez admitted in his Hudson Union Society talk in 2012, "but also incredibly exciting." Moreover, Coppola filmed all of it, and then showed the results to the cast before they started shooting the actual movie.

And as they made the movie and the actors dug into the material, he added, "there was a sense that all these guys were gonna work, that we'd all see each other again. But there was no idea that a lot of these guys would go on to have these extraordinary careers, no."

After a long absence behind the camera, fans are thrilled at the upcoming release of Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis. Whether the supposed behind-the-scenes drama is true or not, Coppola has proven himself on difficult projects before and delivered some all-time cinema classics. But one movie that is often overlooked is his adaptation of The Outsiders.

Even with an all-star young cast that includes Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, and Tome Cruise, the movie isn't remembered so fondly. Some of that could be due to the noticeable differences between the movie and the beloved book The Outsiders.

The book describes the Greasers as controlling the poorer East side of town while the Socs control the wealthier West side. The movie says the Greasers are on the North side of town and the Socs are on the South side of town.

There have been many romance book-to-movie adaptations that have been successful, but The Outsiders actually got rid of some book love stories. One of the main recurring side plots in the book is Soda's relationship with Sandy, but she doesn't appear in the movie at all. Soda was sure he and Sandy would get married but when Sandy becomes pregnant she's sent to live with her grandmother and it's assumed that they won't be getting back together.
